I wore these for a few hours at home to "break in" and they were so comfortable. I then wore then out on a hike that was about 4 miles with over 1000ft elevation gain and they felt amazing. My feet never hurt or got blisters. They are truly waterproof and very sturdy. I got them in blue and enjoy the color too.

Awesome Hiking Boots
These are perfect starter boots. I chose to break these in visiting Sequoia National Park and hiked to see General Sherman and other giant trees around the park. The paths were snowy and wet. These boots kept my feet dry and were easy to navigate through snow. They were comfy and light. I would recommend to get a 1/2 size bigger for room to hike down hills so your toes have room to move in the toe box. They gave me sufficient ankle support for this hike as well. I canât wait to use them for my future hikes!

I wore these on a 4 mile hike today and got blisters on both feet. The step crease in the top of the boot folds down and touches the top of my big toe, which created a painful blister, and then rubbed the skin off. I've never had this issue with any other shoe or boot, but it seems like a common complaint for this boot. I also had some pain in my heels. It's too bad because the boots are lightweight and very cute on.

Cute but lacks quality
The shoe is cute and the price is nice but there is little support, the quality seems lacking, and with no reinforced toe. It will not fair well with the miles I put in. This is a better fit for someone who uses them lightly.

Super light and comfy!
These boots are great for light to medium hiking. The ankle support is good but if I were going on a super advanced hike I would use a boot with a taller ankle for more support. They are so lightweight which I love since heavy boots make me a lot more clumsy, and they have a great classic design. They didn't hurt my feet when first wearing them and didn't even need to be broken in. I wear a 6 1/2 and I got a size 7 so I could wear thicker socks with them. Great boot for the price!

NO ankle support
Looking at the photos it appears these boots have ankle support, since they appear to lace up high. You can lace them up but the laces don't stay up because the tongue is too fat. The laces slip down making for an awkward fit. Even though they're not very expensive I'm really disappointed I wasted anything on them.

Love the way they look and feel!!!
These boots are comfortable and look great as well! I bought a 1/2 size bigger to wear with thicker socks. Love them!

Boots are very comfortable, I have worn them a few times and they feel like I have had them for a year. No breaking in. I wear a size 7 to 7.5 so bought the 7.5,!they fit perfect. Would buy this same boot again.

BEST HIKING BOOT EVER.
I am obsessed with these boots! Not only do I love the classic tan suede with red laces, but they require literally NO breaking in. I received them on a Thursday, and climbed a 14er in them the next day. I was all ready with the duct tape, but I didn't get even ONE blister! Needless to say, you also can't beat the price. My sister bought them to climb Machu Picchu and is equally thrilled with them. For reference, I wear a size 9 in flats, and I took a size 9 in these too. I wear them with the thick kind of SmartWool socks (med. weight?) and they're still remarkably comfortable.
